Professional services firm Deloitte has added four new partners to its team: Jerry Hsu, Rodney Barrell, Dan Wright and Ahmad Salim.

Jerry Hsu re-joins Deloitte from Sayers, which he joined at the beginning of the year (he was then one of ten Big Four seniors brought in to launch Sayer’s tech unit). Hsu is a partner in Deloitte’s forensics practice, part of the financial advisory division.

Prior to joining Sayers as its engineering & technology practice leader, Hsu spent over thirteen years at Deloitte, most recently as its national leader for Intelligent Content and the head of its Robotics & Intelligent Automation business out of Melbourne. Prior to Deloitte, Hsu was a business consultant at KPMG-offspring BearingPoint.

Rodney Barrell joins Deloitte as a partner in Melbourne after a period leading the Victorian business of systems integrator Empired, which was recently purchased by Capgemini in a deal worth upwards of $230 million.

Barrel has been tasked with helping to shape the continued growth of Deloitte’s Microsoft solutions offering, and has previous experience as the Solutions Manager for Dimension Data, as well as an independent management consultant in South Africa.

Dan Wright and his colleague Ahmad Salim were recruited from New Zealand advertising agency Colenso BBDO in September and have now officially joined the Big Four firm. Both join the partnership of Deloitte Digital.

Wright’s new role is Chief Creative Officer for Deloitte Digital in New Zealand and Sydney, tasked with helping to establish the firm’s Sydney Creative Studio, while Salim will oversee the Auckland practice as Managing Director. Previously, Wright was a senior creative director in BBDO’s New York office.

“Dan is one of those rare creatives that has the perfect combination of creative vigour and intellectual rigour. As for Ahmad, he’s a pioneering leader who has consistently forged new ground for clients, and shows no sign of slowing down. We are incredibly lucky to have both join our team,” said Matt Lawson, APAC Chief Creative Officer of Deloitte Digital Creative.
